Folks: Am afraid I have to share with you that Lora's Tippi passed away yesterday. As you may recall, Lora had gone through some tough times with Tippi who eventually was diagnosed with atypical Cushings. Lora said that, over the last two weeks, Tippi had trouble breathing and her heart just gave out. Lora sends her thanks to everyone who connected with her through BW posts. She said that the good that has come out of this is that she and, especially her husband (who was not a "dog" person before Tippi), have realized that they need a pup to make their family complete and will think about getting a new dog in the near future.
